Picturing Mexican America is a project that looks back at the history of Mexican Los Angeles to help us understand our present, and undo the systematic erasure of Los Angeles’ rich Mexican past. The project was launched in the fall of 2018 by UCLA Professor, Marissa López. Working with a research team at UCLA Library and Digital Humanities, and with Los Angeles Public Library, the project is developing a mobile app, walking and bicycle tours, and an accessible archive of images, stories and videos. Join Marissa López and Ani Boyadijian, Research & Special Collections Manager at the Los Angeles Public Library, for a conversation about rediscovering our history.
